Envying the Simple Life...

The prior post I posted kind of leads to wanting this but they are about total different issues/ideas so they deserved separate posts. 

So Mary and I have been talking this last weekend about a different type of lifestyle. I'm not sure how it would work yet as we need to do a ton of research first.
I am tired of the complex life and brought this thought up to Mary last night. We have been talking about it since.
So I was thinking that since I want a simpler life, it would be neat to save up some money and buy an RV to live in. We would rent a spot at an RV park, which I think would be cheaper then an apartment (again working on the research). This would enable us to be able to save more money. Once we had enough money saved we would buy a plot of land just outside of whatever town we wanted to be close too. Once the land was payed off, we would start saving to build our own small house.
Right now I'm tired of the complex life. I want things to be simpler. I'm not sure how much Mary is on this same path with me, but the way we are both talking, I think she might be. We have a friend T, who right now doesn't have a specific place to stay, who lives life very simply. He is talking about traveling and hiking some of the trails around the area. I envy anyone who is able to live a simple life and would love to do this myself. I'm tired of all the static that comes with such complicated life. I need peace in my life and a simpler life would help with that.

So what we need to research or do...
1)Cost of RV parks, on a monthly basis
2) Cost of RVs
3) Cost of vehicles (ours isn't running). We would need a running vehicle before the RV
4) Need full time jobs
5) Get rid of or sell our extra crap we don't need
6) And much, much more I can't think of at the moment

Not sure if or when all of this will happen. Obviously we have to work on the job thing first, so we can save some money. Once money is saved things will flow more readily.

Love & Peace

  1. Hang in there, my Friend. I have to chuckle when I watch the ads for Dos Equis beer. The campaign started a year or so ago with the back story of the "world's most interesting man." He found the fountain of youth, but since he was not thirsty when he found it, he did not drink the water. And now, after every adventure, he reminds us, "I don't always drink beer, but when I do, I prefer Dos Equis. Stay thirsty, my friend."

    So I lovingly remind you, stay thirsty, my friend.
